- i have a few more suggestions.https://www.loudandquiet.comhttps://www.thewire.co.uk/home/the wire is a great magazine which is run by condescending assholes. of course. but try; the edgier, the better.https://thequietus.comthe quietus, which i read every day, is another great magazine staffed and run by assholes.you might also wish to pitch to the baffler.https://thebaffler.coma great socio-political magazine, they do occasional pieces on music, for instance on ryuichi sakamoto, ry cooder, robert wyatt, charles mingus and john coltrane. best of all, they're not a bunch of assholes -- they're grown-ups.
- @george crisp Thanks, George! :-) I'm also an older writer, so probably ruled out, too. I pitched through the Culture Editor (Tim Jonze) at the Guardian last time and he was a lovely guy and sent it to all relevant departments.
- i don't know about pitching to the grauniad; i had a good contact there years ago but, essentially, they were useless. however, i can suggest pitching to the journal of music.https://journalofmusic.comthey have several callouts a year. mind, they're primarily looking for younger writers, which counts me out (i used to contribute to their pages, more than a decade ago), but that shouldn't stop you.there's also this sound and music, which might be able to advise you.https://soundandmusic.orgfinally, if you haven't already, i'd open a submittable account and have a look around there.https://manager.submittable.com/signupgood luck.
